South West, Unit...
I had the Amy Butler fabric for this bag for months. It was intended as a sort of birthday/wedding present… only, it took me so long to finally make it that I am out by nearly a year – and I feel awful about it. Let’s hope it won’t take me another year to post it…
When I started sewing, I wasn’t quite sure if the bag would look extremely busy with the three different patterns, but I think it turned out ok as you can’t really see the inside fabric.
The bag is lined with vlieseline(?) to give it the strength to stand up for itself ;-) It has two inner pockets and a ribbon with a small carabine to hook up a key ring. The Boxy pouch (http://threebears.wordpress.com/2007/10/15/little-boxy-pouch-tutorial/) is rather wonky due to the fact that I am rubbish at sewing in zips. It was intended as a pencil case, but turned out too short. Oh well… next time, I will measure and calculate.
